Capay Valley

I've been avoiding heading back out to Capay this week because I was hoping for some different weather (less harsh sunlight).  But today I gave up waiting and went back to see how it's looking.  This orchard, and many others, are in full bloom, but there are still many orchards just beginning to bloom.  I'll try again over the weekend, and probably midway through next week too, just to see what else I can get.  I'm happy with this one though.  I like the softness of it combined with the curve of the tree trunk pattern.  It caught me by surprise.  I'm always happy when I find a photo I wasn't looking for!

This is beautiful. Another good calendar photo. Where exactly is this Valley Melissa? Gin

Northwest of Woodland. From the Ag History Center you visited you would just drive west on Highway 16. You enter the valley after Esparto. Eventually you would hit Highway 20 heading up to Clearlake.

Oh yes, I know the road. Those Clear lake switvchbacks are quite the drive!
